I wrote a novel about this once. Once you give people the chance at 100% democracy via a texting hook-up, proper education and a stake in the country by having them serve it before they get a say… it's a win-win situation. The government is the population and the population is the government.

“After all I created it for all of us didn't I? I worked my fingers to the bone and this is utopia, now tell me friends, how can we citizens make it better?”

Liberty, equality, and fraternity. edit: sorority too. I am an equalitarian.

Vive le Bravo!
I declare the revolution is over. I am France and France is me!

If I hadn't already, I would probably die of a heart attack after getting so stressed out about so many things depending on me. Or I'd go crazy, hole up in a room somewhere and refuse to rule so everything would just continue the way it was or be taken over by someone else.

What about “sorority”?

Equal say is impossible. Some will always have more influence. If you're more charasmatic for whatever reason you can influence a large number of people to vote the way you want and maybe eventually make things so that your position in entrenched and you don't have to use that charisma any longer.

As emperor of everything, part of my plan to make things better will be that people have to wear eleborate uniforms and costumes. …Just because I love that sort of thing. :)

Ooh, that would be neat! Would we wear different outfits every day, or would we each have our own unique costume, perhaps one which we would develop as we grew and finally have made on the day we became an adult or something? We could have a class in school for it. And tailors would be the most respected people around.

You have exactly the right idea there! I say Unique costumes that develop, but also classes of costume depending on job and such… So doctors could have fancy red crosses etc.

The rebels would probably all wear tracksuits with food stains on the front or something…

But if any tailors approach me telling me they can make me the best costume ever, except that I won't be able to see it, they will be locked up for good -_-

Let us all pray that our future emperor will not fall for that trick. I'd hate having to attend to that mandatory parade.
Those were my two cents.

Critical thinking. Make it second nature through proper education. And the whole charimatic thing is easy to control with a ruthlessly effcient secret police. (Fouche, not Beria)

I love the whole uniform thing, Napoleon had it right. Give someone a cool uniform and their morale soars. Though there is something to be said for practicality and economy. I'm thinking something along the lines of the uniforms of Napoleon III's empire and clothing practices of the mid-nineteenth century (though with more comfortable female underwear, but lots of cleavage!) Now that's fashion!

You know I couldn't remember the word “sorority” Thank you.

Obviously, I would establish myself as a God. Then I would use the amazing gimmicks that got me there in the first place to make myself a true god. Then I'd just screw with the world.

Simple hint: keep small dogs, calico wearing ingenues, talking scarecrows, Tin woodsmen and 'fraidly cats away from you throne room and always make certain you have an obvious person to point at as an enemy; even if she is your own daughter.

How crass of you. To be a truly successful universe leader you have to be subtle. With my mind contr- education system the people love to serve me- er-the state- because they think they have a say.

By the way don't look up because those strings you see is me controlling you.

I never mentioned what I'd do…

I'd rule with an iron fist for a time (I am supposed to be an EVIL guy, but with a touch of sadism and such). Eventually I'll realize out of boredom that the Universe and all existence has no meaning and I'll go with the next stage in my plan; amass enough power to become a diety and destroy the whole Universe. That would be the one final challenge I would go for after having conquered everything…

Nobody posted how to do it. Here's how.

1) Learn how to be charismatic and be a good public speaker. Study things like body language and voice projection. A good person to study is Barack Obama (like him or hate him). That will gain you popular support.

2) Stage terror attacks and economic crises. Then the solution has to be ALWAYS one that involves a reason to get the government an excuse to get into your life. A good reason is to play on the people's fears. Its the terrorists. Its the criminals. Its the diseases. Its the environment. If you give up your freedom in exchange for your safety its the right thing to do.

3) Upon taking power, make sure you kill all who have the slightest possibility of opposing you. As well as the “useful idiots”. But as much as possible, do it in such a way that it makes it look like a suicide or accident. To be less suspicious. Also make use of framing up other people as the ones responsible for the assassinations.

4) Repeat number 2 but intensify it. Terrorize the people so much to the point where they will beg you to just lock them up in little pods and get microchips inserted in them as they get plugged into a “matrix”. Because life is so horrible. Why not live in a world that is so happy and with no problems?

5) Make sure that those who aren't terrorized enough are dumbed down. Fluoridate their water, feed them GMO foods, aspartame, MSGs, and all sorts of chemicals, inject them with lots of vaccines, or any tactic that attacks their food source. Make sure the people are weak, docile, or just plain stupid.

6) Brainwash, brainwash, brainwash. That is the last stand in the war against the people. Give them fake controlled religions and belief systems that are designed to limit their understanding of reality. They have to believe that they are powerless. And at the same time, they have to believe that they are free and that they are lucky to have you as the dear leader.

The ultimate goal is complete enslavement and complete destruction of the concept of the individual. The endgame is a world where all the people are nothing more than mindless robots whose sole purpose is to serve you.

7) To prevent military mutinies, make sure your military is a robotic force. The military force should only be made up of drones and warrior mechs. They should only be controlled by your most hardcore and loyal group of followers. To be in the inner-group of loyal followers, they must have demonstrated their loyalty by killing their own family members or anyone else whom you order them to kill.



Anyway, this is easier said than done. :)

Yes! Protect people from diseases and tooth decay! That'll get 'em!

Anyways, I say the best way to take over the universe is to be amazingly ridiculously super-smart. From there, the plans should pretty much make themselves.

Yeah. While controlling their population at the same time.

I'd buy myself some hos and then teach them to make the universes most delicious sandwiches.

Because then I wouldn't have to make them.

You know, I would think that people would be a lot easier to control when they're weak from horrible diseases that could be easily prevented through vaccinations. Or have we developed new drugs that allow us to magically control people's minds?

huh… this is a pretty scary thing to think about, actually… I don't think I'd be able to handle ruling the entire world.

But anyway, I'd try not to be a bad ruler. I'd make sure there was one large military whose sole purpose is to protect the people from harm and discrimination. I'd definitely raise the wages of teachers, doctors, and people who take care of young children or the elderly. Free will is very important. Those who help others will be rewarded. I hope that would be enough to keep people from hurting each other.

Oh yeah, and freedom of religion and freedom of the press would stay. I'm not sure if I would keep the right to bear arms, because I believe that it's important with the world the way it is now… but hopefully I would be able to change things so that we wouldn't need guns and weapons.

*sap*

of course, there's tons of ways this could backfire, but hey… I tried…

obviously I'm too much of a pacifist to take over the world, though.

seems like it would suck when you rule everything, maybe slavery.

i'd exile myself, so then I could rape and pillage again. and then i'll have double conquered whatever i conquered in the first place. and double-conquering the universe is waaaaaaaaay cooler than just conquering the universe.
